A very late Menu Plan Monday (29th May - 4th June)

Saturday we had no plans and I really didn't fancy spending the day cleaning although I should have done just that as while we gallavanted around the city all day the cleaning fairies definitely didn't pay our house a visit!!

On the good side though we all had a great day in the city having lunch on Southbank, visiting the National Gallery of Victoria and just enjoying spending the quality time together.
Sunday was footy footy and more footy!! And voila it's Monday again - and this is what has been menu planned this week:

Saturday ~ Kon Thai Restaurant
Sunday ~ Thai Beef with Chilli Caramel Sauce
Monday ~ Spaghetti Carbonara
Tue ~ Roast Beef with Yorkshire Puddings, Vegetables and Gravy
Wed ~ Apricot Ginger Chicken, Steamed Rice and Vegetables
Thu ~ Springtime Lamb Casserole
Fri ~ Herb and Spice Steamed Fish, asian greens

As you have probably gathered by now, I LIVE for menu planning! By menu planning it ensures that we have a weeks worth of meals organised which is especially useful Monday through Friday when there is not much of the day left after finishing work, picking up the kids from school and having to deal with the tasks of homework, clothes washing, showers, etc., and to do without the hassle of worrying WHAT we are cooking for dinner each night. Honestly if I left deciding what’s for dinner until I go home we wouldn’t eat until midnight!!

I know that our week starts on a Saturday but that’s just for the ease of fitting in with my grocery shopping which is normally done on a Friday night or Saturday afternoon. As usual more great menu ideas can be found at Menu Plan Monday over at I’m An Organising Junkie, don’t be shy pop over and have a look at other’s menu plans. You never know you may just find something different to have for dinner.

Some recipes for things we cook can be found over at our cooking blog, A Dash Of Flavour, normally posted after they have been cooked or just click on the links for each meal when they appear.

Happy cooking,
